I just got through reading over your HJT log thingy and this caught my eye Boo -->
Total Physical Memory: 352 MiB (512 MiB recommended). <-- Have you considered increasing your memory?
I don't know if it will help with your problem or not, but I don't think that it could hurt.

The reason I asked about your video card is that often causes this kind of problem with SP2. It would be worth downloading and installing the latest driver available for it, just to see if it makes a difference.
You can see what yours is by clicking on Start then Run, typing devmgmt.msc and pressing Enter or clicking OK.
Click on the + next to Display adapters. You video card will be listed there.
Also, what is the make and model of your computer?
If this doesn't help you can try the following:
First, physically disconnect from the Internet to prevent a malware infection while your Anti-virus and/or Firewall are disabled in the following steps, then do a normal boot:
Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab and disable everything (I mean everything).
Do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.
If no, click on the Services tab. Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.
Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Reconnect to the Internet when your AV and firewall are active again.
